That's beautiful. Reminds me of what I heard someone saying the other day, I paraphrase "regions are home, nations are projection."
Haha this made me think, I know what comes with my regional background, bavarian.
And yes, I am embarrassed, but what can you do right? We like to drink, we are
all of this
. Are smaller
regions the solution? Probably not, even my family is embarrassing. But ideas. I think we can agree on a few.
"Und a Preiß wenn grad sei Mei aufmacht, dann hot er Pech ghabt dann spuckt er Bluad"
That's Hans Söllner and it's sarcasm. He sees the racism.
On some level we all are. That's maybe what we should agree on, break it down to who we are, what we like, not what we are against, but what we are
Break down to regions have referendum for every fundamental decision, the groundbreaking moments. Because it doesn't work, you can't leave the control
in the hands of a certain group and that group alone. They betray a few, naturally.
Culture should be regional, giving identity, but also maybe the idea is more important. Not the person.
I think we are so desperately looking for culture because we are no movement. Beer, octoberfest
is that culture? We need help, seriously.
